[laughter] we planted in this little one micro climate in amadora. >> why there? >> because somebody had a plot of land, we'd put in the seeds and all of these things. we learn it had hard way, and we decided that we would have um -- somebody assigned to the job of going out of the forger and looking for the farms that were growing the food we with wanted. isabella was the first who ultimately led to the opening of the san francisco farmer's market. she new some farms, a few, already. she was cooking at the restaurant and knew what we wanted. and we started that way, just a couple. now we have 85 different people we buy from during the course of the year. some of them are very little and some of them grow all of our salads. >> any farmer's markets back then? 1970s? >> i forget about the timing of these things. i think, probably they were given with a couple of people, you knew in the 1970s. >> there are critics at the time. typically restaurants? were there critics in the agricultural industry? people that didn't like the message? >> there were critics, i
